    Shangha's Lupu Bridge starts from Luban Road, Puxi in the north, crosses the Huangpu River and ends at Jiyang Road, Pudong in the south, with a total length of 8.7 kilometers (about 5.4 miles). It was designed by Shanghai Municipal Engineering Design Institute, and built by the local government between 2000 and 2003. It is the first steel arch bridge in the world, with the longest span.

    Enjoying its fame as 'the First Steel Arch Bridge in the World', Lupu Bridge's main body is an all-steel construction, with only one span. It has a total length of 3,900 meters (4265 yards), of which the main body takes up 750 meters (820 yards). The main body of the bridge is arc-shaped, like a rainbow flying across the Huangpu River. Integrating the bridge technology of cable-stayed bridge, arch bridge, and suspension bridge, Lupu Bridge is a real engineering feat, built with the most complicated construction techniques and huge amount of steel. The cross section of its main arch is the biggest among the bridges in the world, 9 meters (30 feet) high and 5 meters (5 yards) wide. The bridge carries 6 lanes of traffic, while under it even a 70,000-ton-class ship can pass through smoothly.
